Today I went back to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. It’s like a magnet.
I’m hanging out in Carroll Gardens unable to stop thinking about all the gorgeous flora in Prospect Park and the only thing separating us is a quick ride on the B71 bus. So, off I went.
The Cranford Rose Garden is a sprawling, manicured, fragrant rose buffet.
Many varieties are still in bloom, as seen here, but 90% of them have gone to the great rose garden in the sky.
This looked like a bridal bouquet on a branch. Just cut and carry down the aisle.
OK, this really speaks to my macro lust. I’m not doing the photography justice!!
I need a longer lens. And a tripod. And an assistant.
Beautiful succulent. I love succulents, Not sure why.
I think it’s the word… succulent… mmmm.
Wow! Ferns dressed up in pink and green – so preppy.
I decided to walk back because Park Slope is so pretty.
I took a great shot of a beautiful row of brownstones, but somehow deleted it by accident :-(
Now about that assistant… :-)
